Yeah, it was odds. He was getting freeroll:1 on his money to call.
To answer OP's question: it would depend on stack sizes and blinds at this point. I would go all in with 22/call an all in I thought I had a slight edge, stacks were short, blinds were big, etc. It sounds like it was a bad idea to do from your post, but it could've easily have been justified if we knew more about the hand.
